Report: Evelyn Lozada files for divorce from Chad Johnson

If you thought Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries ended quickly (they lasted just 72 days) that’s nothing compared to the union of former Patriots receiver Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada, who’re calling it quits after barely 40 days. TMZ reported Tuesday that Lozada filed for divorce in Florida claiming her marriage to the unemployed pass catcher is “irretrievably broken.’’ The NFL star formerly known as Ochocinco was arrested over the weekend for allegedly headbutting his wife. (Lozada told police the two had been arguing after she found a receipt for a box of condoms in his car.) The couple was married July 4 in St. Maarten, and the ceremony was recorded for a reality TV show that VH1 canceled this week. In the wake of the news, Johnson issued an apology: “I would like to wish Evelyn well and will never say anything bad about her because I truly love her to death. I will continue to be positive and train hard for another opportunity in the NFL. To all the fans and supporters I have disappointed, you have my sincerest apologies.’’
